Public Lecture: Space Weather and Ionospheric Research

Clock icon
16:30 – 18:30 16 Nov 2016

Lecture Theatre MP 0.11 (A), Physical Sciences Building, Aberystwyth University, SY23 3FL

Speakers: Dr Natasha Jackson-Booth, QinetiQ Malvern Technology Centre

The ionosphere is a region in the Earth's atmosphere which is ionised by extreme UV solar radiation and fluctuates in response to events such as solar flares, geomagnetic storms, and lightning. All of these can have a huge, and often adverse, impact on the performance of transionospheric radio systems and investigations into the ionosphere aim to mitigate system impacts. This presentation describes results from the Metal Oxide Space Clouds (MOSC) experiment undertaken in April/May 2013 where two sounding rockets were launched from Kwajalein Atoll (part of the Marshall Islands).

Tea will be provided from 16:30 in the Staff Common Room, Floor 2, Physical Sciences Building. All are invited to attend.
